INDUSTRY.co.id - Palembang - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) opens XXX National Congress and MPA XXIX Assembly of the Catholic Students Association of Indonesia (PMKRI) in Palembang, South Sumatera on Monday (22/1/2018).

In his speech, President Jokowi said one of the policies to keep the inequality is through the policy of fuel (Fuel Oil) one price. This policy is a form of social justice for the people of Indonesia.

"Three years ago when I came to Wamena, I asked the people there how much the Premium price in Wamena, I did not ask one, two, three people, but I asked a lot. Price Rp 60.0000, that is normal, when the weather is not be it Rp 100,000 per liter, where social justice is once again for all Indonesian people," said the President.

To achieve this, President Jokowi has asked the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM), Ignatius Jonan to follow up the BBM Satu Price policy and implemented thoroughly, so that there will be no fuel price imbalance between one region and other regions.

"I ordered the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, Minister I asked for fuel prices in Java, in Sumatra also in Papua should be the same and now eight months the price of fuel in Papua, Central Mountain equals the price we enjoy in Java," said President Jokowi.

The event that took the theme of 'Rising Pancasila toward a Sovereign Indonesia' was attended by Minister of ESDM Ignasius Jonan, Social Minister Idrus Marham, Minister of Youth and Sports Imam Nahrawi and Minister of Transportation Budi Karya Sumadi.

The government has prepared a roadmap for fuel price one. A total of 57 BBM suppliers have been built in 2017 while for 2018, the Government commissioned PT Pertamina (Persero) to build 50 fuel suppliers and by 2019 as many as 46 channeling institutions. All of them are in an area that is still isolated in the economic and access roads that are difficult to reach.
